Being human is weird and messy. Learning to live with our own thoughts and our internal narratives can be exhausting. I work well with clients addressing concerns related to anxiety, grief, burnout, relational challenges, adult family dynamics, work life balance, feelings of overwhelm, and depression. I have experience working with other health professionals on their own mental health journeys. I enjoy working with "overachievers" and "people pleasers" who are interested in living a life beyond their resume and reconnecting with themselves. I also enjoy supporting clients rebuilding life post brain injury and stroke.

As co-founder of SpringSource Psychological Center, I am pleased to share that we have several excellent clinicians with immediate availability. The decision to seek therapy is a courageous one, and I have the utmost respect for individuals who take this step. I believe therapy can be life changing.

I have been working in the field of psychotherapy since 2004, helping clients cope primarily with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and life changes. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Missouri, and I taught Language Arts on the high school level for two years. As a teacher, the limits of the classroom environment prevented me from reaching many of my troubled students, which led me to pursue a graduate degree from Loyola University-Chicago in Community Counseling.

Most people seek therapy because they are disappointed in a relationship, or have lost someone important to them. Often, this experience reactivates old hurts and losses which weaken feelings of self-worth. I work to help that person restore a sense of self-appreciation, to deepen their self-understanding, and enhance their relationships with others.

As a therapist, I am here to recognize the strength in you that you might have forgotten or even struggle to see. Some may think their problem is insignificant, but reaching out to speak to someone no matter how big or small, is a step. It is my hope that you will allow me the chance to be your partner in that journey.

I help individuals, couples, families, and executives improve their relationships to others and themselves. I combine insight, mindfulness, and experiential models of therapy to increase awareness of the process and patterns that keep people stuck and identify and implement new ways of being with themselves and others. I actively guide clients through different ways of thinking and communicating in session and will often assign “homework” to deepen this work outside of session. Trained at Northwestern University, I am an integrative and systemic therapist who pulls from a number of different evidence-based models of therapy.

We all struggle at times. Although we try our best to manage, sometimes our struggles are more than we can handle. It is at these times that we most need someone to be there for us; someone who can be genuine, non-judgmental, and supportive; someone who will listen and accept us. It is at these times that we often find it hardest to ask for help, yet need it the most. I have been helping people during these difficult times for the past five years.

We all experience a wide variety of feelings during our life time. Uncomfortable feelings such as anxiety, depression, resentment, guilt and shame are often difficult to own and process. When these feelings are not well processed, they disrupt our sense of self-esteem and self-worth. I became an LCSW in 2013 to pursue my passion to help people regain their sense of self-esteem and self-worth. In my practice, I often use therapeutic techniques such as active/empathic listening, reflection, reality testing and boundary setting. These techniques help my clients feel better about themselves and live fuller, more meaningful lives.

I love supporting my clients in discovering the brightest versions of themselves. I strive to be a grounding presence, offering strengths-based insight in a consistent, nurturing, and nourishing space where you can stretch, grow, and thrive. My trauma-informed clinical work also names the heavy impact of the systems at play in our lives - racism, white supremacy, colonization, capitalism, patriarchy, anti-queerness, anti-fatness and ableism must be acknowledged as complex and enduring influences on our institutions and therefore on our individual and collective healing.

I support long-term couples struggling with conflict and disconnection who may feel unsure how to solve their challenges or rekindle their loving dynamic. I help couples improve communication skills, identify and express underlying vulnerable emotions, and ultimately deepen their intimacy and romantic connection. I also support folks with dysfunctional family and/or religious histories, who are interested in alternative healing approaches. This may entail witnessing the pain and patterns of the past, and then potentially reclaiming and reimagining their relationship with spirituality.

It is not always easy to reach out to a stranger for help, yet you know you are ready to make a change in your life. My focus is on helping clients by understanding systemic or external factors that may impact your relationship with yourself and others. With that understanding we then work together to use that understanding to influence how we treat ourselves and engage the world around us.
